• Yidumduma Bill Harney: Bush Professor

Celebrating one man’s remarkable journey

A new retrospective exhibition brings to life a culture passing out of memory and one man’s remarkable journey to share the remaining vestiges of his people with the world. 

Yidumduma Bill Harney: Bush Professor is an exhibition celebrating the life work of Yidumduma Bill Harney, launched in May 2016 at the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre in his local community of Katherine, Northern Territory.

At over 80 years of age, Harney is one of the last fully initiated elders of the Wardaman people. He is a charismatic storyteller and artist and the only remaining living custodian of the collective memory, laws and history of his people. 

This exhibition will open at 6pm, Friday, 13 January 2017, at the Collie Art Gallery and will be on display Thursdays-Mondays, until 19 February.

Exhibition on show 10am-4pm, Thursdays-Mondays, until 19 February 2017.
